AMITY AND ENMITY
No wonder people many people have little interest in politics and less appreciation for the arcane arts of broad humbug via politicians. Why - even journalists are guilty of bringing democratic processes into disrepute.
But worse; try reading editorials, articles and letters espousing ''sacrifices in the pursuit of freedom and free speech'' published in The Australian for example on merely Tuesday 6/5. Such grandiose verbiage.
Remember the infamous quote:
And The Oz not for the first time, continues the ignoble loosing fight in the editorial of 6/5.
Indeed - it has been obvious for a good while that they will have to get used to 18C; it will remain more or less as is.
THE GREAT WARREN MUNDINE
Note Warren Mundine wrote on April 1 in The Australian.
The key is the last sentence. So much rubbish has elsewhere been promoting the idea that freedom of speech trumps the responsibility for same! Why have we seen three letters from The League of Rights promoting unilateral freedom?
Will the next debate be the above or whether the Nazis should have finished the job? The new Thin edge of the wedge? Who would have believed a mere few years ago that Jews would be attacked in the streets?
Mundine was unfairly lacerated by a professor of law a few days later. A travesty.
Note the op ed in The Oz on 29 March, 2014
Comment from gs:this article is imbecilic
at best! My extreme language is justified
- not the least because of this:
21 per cent increase in the number of reports of racist violence directed at
individuals or Jewish facilities in the past year. That disturbing trend is a
good reason for open debate and the airing of grievances, to allow
them to be dealt with by rational, sensible argument.''t
GS: THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO
OBSCENITIES HERE ABOVE: SURELY
ANYONE CAN SEE THEM???
Note that Jews are now encouraged to believe that being attacked requires them to accept that it is their fault, we should debate it with criminals - and LO! Even the 18C is being blamed for not preventing the attacks!
RECONFIGURING BIGOTRY - IT IS NOT JUST BRANDIS' FAULT
The reconfiguring of bigotry via the comment from George Brandis was irresponsible. I think he realizes it now.
This mid point is as follows. Yad Vashem is still struggling to find the names of the 6 million who perished. So, is there anyone who wishes to debate that there were only 5,950,000 Jews murdered?
Or will the next debate be the above or whether the Nazis should have finished the job?
May be those same cavalier people who today ignorantly espouse freedom of speech for incipient defacto Nazis on the AXIS of the contextually - untenable 'freedom' of speech moniker, should become aware what the ill - thought consequences will be. It is essentially decreptitudinous and dastardly.
